debate. almost 60 million people watched mitt romney crush president obama last night. twitter blew up, biggest political night ever. so what did you guys think? let's start it out. polling, you were excited last night? >> it was great. twitter was going crazy. honestly, mitt romney made president obama look silly and small. he was great. mitt romney was. president obama was bumbling. he looked like he didn't want to be there. we heard all those analogies today. but i found it interesting that michael moore blamed john kerry, the debate prep guy. david axelrod blamed jim lehrer. al gore blamed the altitude. but nobody -- nobody blamed the president for being unprepared and outclassed by mitt romney last night. >> dana, take us deep into the psychology. what was going on? he looked like a man defeated. >> he sort of faded into the background initially. then i thought maybe it will get better. at the one hour mark, i thought wow, this is over. i thought romney was very bold. but he was also something different that he was fresh. and there is a huge gulf between the man that had been pain
a liar mitt romney is and was last night. if he was talking, he was -- testifies speaking last night, he was lying. mitt romney had a good night, but, you know, even a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then. >> brian: 09 minutes -- 90 minutes? that's like if off lucky question, that would be an apt analogy. but we don't even know any blind squirrels. >> gretchen: how will romney go on the response mode to these attacks? he did so last night on the sean hannity program. here he is reacting to the president's damage control yesterday. >> i have watched some of the attacks that have come my way. you just shake your head. i do recall that the president's acceptance speech four years ago, he said that if you don't have a record to run on, you attack your opponent. you try and disqualify your opponent and early on in this campaign, there were democrats strategists, one in particular who said their campaign strategy was to kill romney. hopefully not literally. this kind of character assassination is something which i think has gone way too far and i think is an unfortunate part of this ca
is governor romney with sean manty last night. >> what i find so offensive about his tax plan, by raising taxes on small business, as he does, he will kill jobs. and right now, what america needs, as much as anything else is more jobs, more jobs more take-home pay. is the whole focus of my campaign. i know what the president's been campaigning on and saying about me is very different than what i actually am, what i actually believe. that is where the difference came. what the president has been saying and reality are pretty far apart. martha: that in the mix this morning. a lot to add into the picture. senior nothing correspondent john roberts is live from st. petersburg, florida, today. that's where we find governor romney. he will hold a rally there later today. what about the aspect of truth of issue in this campaign, john? >> reporter: oh, this is turning out to be a real battle between taxes and the truth, martha. let's handle taxes first of all. governor romney on the stump is insisting his 20% across the board reduction in tax rates would benefit and middle class and small business
of people have pointed out what a liar mitt romney is and was last night. i mean, if he was talking, if he was speaking last night, he was lying. look, mitt romney had a good night, but, you know, even, you know, a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then. >> it's the old classic a broken clock is right twice a day. >> so the argument is that president obama was so shell-shocked, i guess he got up there on the podium he was so shell shocked he couldn't believe the lies coming from mitt romney he didn't know how to respond for two hours. >> that's ridiculous. >> don't you think the voters would prefer the president's team to say you know what? he had an off night. he overprepared. underprepared too busy being president. mitt romney a liar that's the best you can do. >> maybe mitt romney did really well. congratulations to you. i can't wait to get to october 16th when we can try this again. >> you thought so much of the primary season mitt romney was running to the right of the party saying he was severely conservative all of these things he was saying to say how conservative he was. he
was and who they would be. and i think mitt romney just so pulled that off the other night. and it is showing in the polls and every place else. >> i thought it interesting. right after the debate. this is the best debate by a republican since lincoln. >> that's what i said. it is easy to say best since reagan. everybody said that. my father remember a line here and there when he debated jimmie cart yer mondale and they are great debates of course. but the debate that mitt romney put on. it was a mitt romney debate. not reagan. the depraspness of the issues and the way he went and from the beginning to the end. there great moments all the way through. there were not just one but many. that was the best debate since lincoln and i say that to honor mitt romney for what he did and not tie him to ronald reagan. we make a mistake when we look for ronald reagan. we were not looking for lincoln when we found reagan. and we were looking for a landlorder and we found one the other night. >> so many conservatives feel your father set the high bar in the presidential debates. >> i think they probably di

romney we saw on wednesday night, we have to see it again and again and again. and his campaign, greg, needs to make us see him. we are a little stressed in analyzing this race that since thursday morning they are not capitalizing well enough. their tv ads are not running clips from the debate highlighting the great performance. it is not on the ads. >> it has changed a little bit. i want to ask you about the performants because people say well, that was not really president obama, he was off the game. if you actually watch president obama without a teleprompter in news conferences, he fumbles, stumbles and mumbles, he goes on and on like a recovery and he never answered the question. >> that is true. he did not draw a clear distinction between him record and the positions that governor romney has taken. john is right, he did not make the kind of charges he has made successfully about cutting medicare and medicaid, social security. the bottom line, romney was able to move to the center, obama fell apart, i think, even worse than you are saying. he looked like he was not up to the job.

to be lacking on tuesday night. and accusing romney at shocking dishonesty and even though the deputy campaign acknowledged that tax cut would not be nearly 5 trillion dollars, it's something that the president repeated in cleveland. >> we put two wars a two tax cuts on a credit card. we didn't pay for them. now, mr. romney wants another 5 trillion dollars in tax cuts that he can't pay for. we're not going to let that happen. we are not going to fall backward, not with so much at stake. >> reporter: governor romney answering in the ad wars, as well. a new ad featuring melanie mack that mara that voted for president obama back in 2008. this time around she says she is going to vote for mitt romney. one of the views from the obama campaign, they had an amazing fund-raising month, $181 million raised. that a little bit less than what they raised in september 2008 but it does bring them closer that billion dollar mark in fund-raising for the year. >> gregg: john roberts live in apopka, florida. thanks very much. >> heather: expectations high for round two of the presidential debate. the issue of y

with the romney campaign for not making more of this. you know, romney came out late at night, the night of september 11th, after this had happened, but before he knew that ambassador stevens had been killed, came out, criticized the statement that had come out of the cairo embassy about the -- about the demonstrations there. then got a huge amount of criticism. as the facts began to pile up against obama, the romney campaign stayed somewhat silent, and has still to this day not made a lot of the problems that developed. >> the debate is built entirely around foreign policy. if romney doesn't take advantage of that platform to raise questions, again, poke holes in the president's arguments -- >> greta: why isn't he now? this is coming from the super pac. >> i think the romney campaign thinks it can wait that long, at least some people in the romney campaign, think it can wait, and want to do his foreign policy right before that debate, so there's some bringing together of these arguments. i think the time is now. you had governor romney asked about this last week on his plane. you know,
presidential election, but is still a massive amount of money, last night, talking to the romney campaign and the big fund-raising dollars the obama campaign was putting up, romney staffers smiled as if to suggest they might top it. >> arthel: and also a statement, romney pushing his tax policy, this weekend, right? >> reporter: of course in the wake of the debate in which the romney campaign it really defined the race, a choice between a dependency society with rising taxes that could hurt the recovery, versus the romney agenda which could cut taxes and rely fully on a smaller government and individual responsibility and entrepreneurial spirit and the romney campaign is attacking ever harder. here's a sample from last night. >> it has been calculated his tax plan raising taxes will cost 700,000 jobs. i will not raise taxes on small business and not raise taxes on middle income families. >> reporter: he will spend a little more time in florida and campaign here tomorrow and he has been doing a bit of debate prep with robhe senator from ohio and his debate sparring... playing the role of m
tomorrow night of imcompetence. look, mitt romney, it's all on him. all on him. all president obama has to do is basically just be himself and not say anything, just repeat the same old thing. mitt romney has to convince the american people that going forward, he's a better alternative than the president. it's not going to be easy. so he's going to have to paint the president as an incompetent. this libya thing can be part of that, but certainly the economy, way more important to the folks than libya. but he can weave it. the second thing is that romney has got to kind of put aside his politician persona. i mean, he looks perfect, right? he looks like a president should look. but that's not working against him because people don't know who he is. he's got to find a way to say look, this is who i am. this is why i'm better. in very simple terms. it's daunting task for the governor. >> gretchen: yeah, it is. because if he comes across as sort of being in attack mode, which a lot of republicans want him to be, then the press might say, oh, wow. he really went too far. >> he can't care abou
, and his complaint inability to bring washington together to get anything done? i think the more romney can stick to the facts, the more trouble obama will be in tomorrow night. >> greta: what do you expect tomorrow night, in terms -- if people think this will be a huge event? or is this one debate of many, it is chipping away? and what is interesting, i think that afterwards, the pundits and the analysts -- and maybe i will be doing it, calling calling whd who lost? >> look, i think it's a very clear-cut situation. romney has to go in and be very clear and very factual and stick to his grounds. he has to recognize he's up against the incumbent president. obama will try to over-awe him. romney has to be able to stick straight, not flinch, not back off and recognize he will be double teamed. the fact is, jim lehrer is part of the cultural left. so romneyville to communicate pastlerrer and past obama to reach the american people. if he does that, i think he could have a very good night. i think you could see a very different races by thursday morning. >> greta: why do you think jim lehrer wil
on a day-to-day basis. i think what this video goes to -- mitt romney will bring this up tomorrow night. he will talk about the statements that the president made about his own tax plans and the things that the president's on the record, whether or not he has been truthful. he will bring up a video like this and he will ask the question about whether or not the president, who presents himself as the guy who represents everyone is really the guy who ran in 2008 and who he is now. >> i am interested it see that. i would be curious to know if mitt romney will bring it up. he will be asked about it. if not in the debate, another appearance. does he want to go where john plk cane, famously didn't go. >> sure! >> he has to make a calculation of whether or not it helps the campaign. if you are the romney folk, i am not sure you plan it out this way. obviously, potentially, it is potentially more damaging to mitt romney. but does he want to own this and make the same argument? john mccain had that opportunity and decided not to do it. >> i think you do it subtly and go to the credibility thing -- >
obama for having not brought up in the debate the other night. criticizing mr. romney for his now 5 month old remarks to a closed fundraiser surreptitiously videoed that he suggested 47% of americans who don't pay income taxes are looking for some sort of government handout. first he called it inelegant. never defended it and never renounced it last night on the hannity show he did so summarily. watched? >> in this case i said something that's just completely wrong. i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%. >> completely wrong. a big jump from inelegant. having said that the romney campaign would like very much to close the chapter on this and get it behind them. the democrats today, the obama campaign, the democratic national committee and a whole bunch of other groups were firing off attack ads and groups trying to keep it center stage right through the presidential debate next week and the two presidential debates that follow. >> as you pointed out, carl it, didn't come up in this past debate may very well close the door on it yet. carl cammero
in 08. no word for the romney campaign. but when i talked to staffers last night and discussed the obama total of over 181 million dollars. they all smiled and grinned and said perhaps we can top that. they haven't said that is the case. for mr. romney 12 million just since the debate. that is a vast amount of on line fund raise there is concern in the republican party that the big donor are making their money for the house and senate because mr. mitt romney had a tough go and well, in the wake of the debate uptake in big dollar donations for the romney campaign suggest they aleviated. there is a major phone bank and calling all over the country that type of grass roots is very, very important as we are 31 days from the election . it is electric. people were wait traffic was thick around that venu. i want to explain to everybody. we are monitor what the government is saying. he is getting cheers about remarks of repealing obama care. carl is on the job . campaign carl, we don't call him that for nothing. moving on now . and sticking with the economy. gas prices reaching an all-time high

[ laughter ] >> steve: funny. >> brian: i did not hear that. is that the premise of that joke true? that he watched four hours of football? >> martha: you can also go back to the notion that it shouldn't take that much studying to get ready for this. >> steve: you should know. >> martha: they've been working on these issues, they've been campaigning on these issues across the country for months and months and months. does it really take that much studying to get ready for this? >> brian: is it wrong to disagree with martha? >> martha: absolutely. ask hemmer. >> brian: i think it's totally different when someone is coming at you and saying you're wrong about this and defending something yo

night. and i marked it as saying, this is the first time he's really left a mark on mitt romney. now, it wasn't a knockout blow or anything like that, not a knockdown, a moment when he was able to say something that showed that he was actually in denver for the debate because up until that moment, i'm not sure if he was pre-celebrating his anniversary, i don't know. but he had not tuned into the same debate that 67 million other people had tuned into. now, here is president obama touting what he's done for education. >> we've got a program called race to the top that has prompted reforms in 46 states around the country, raising standards, improving how we train teachers so now i want to hire another 100,000 new math and science teachers and create 2 million more slots in our community colleges so that people can get trained for the jobs that are out there right now. and i want to make sure that we keep tuition low for our young people. >> mike: and i want to make sure that everybody's christmas stocking is filled with everything they've wanted when it comes christmas time. one little
as well. megyn: joe, is there, you know, is there, is there more opportunity for mitt romney tonight than we've seen on any other night? i mean, is this really -- like, this is his chance to do it? >> certainly in past debates the challenger seems to do very well in the first one, again, partly just because being there with the president of the united states regardless of party adds to your stature and puts you on an even playing field, so i think romney benefit from that. but the other side of this is, look, a lot of the polls lately, you're seeing numbers like 57% of the american people in the polling say yes to is america on its path to recovery, 57% are saying yes to that. 43% saying no. romney's got the 43 or the bulk of those people, he's got to start, i think the most important thing for him tonight is to explain what in specific terms he's going to do, and an interesting thing in the journal poll -- "wall street journal" poll today was that 43% of the americans who answered that poll said they didn't know enough about his plans. even though he thinks he's said them, not saying tha
